Get Your Next Promotion

August 2020 | 280 pages | SAGE Response
Seeking your next promotion but not quite there yet? Rising up in your career shouldn’t be left to chance. 

Get Your Next Promotion makes you understand why some people get promoted while some get stuck. 
There are a few things that stop professionals from growing beyond mid-level management. Here is a chance to understand the problems and the challenges that you may have been facing and why your current efforts may no longer lead you to your next promotion. 

Each person must find their own path up to the mountain peak, yet to complete the feat successfully, they still need the same universal strengths, skills and tools. One may favour certain strengths or tools over the others but missing on some may lead to failure. Similarly, while there cannot be a single formula for progressing up the career path, this book reveals the universal abilities that all must possess to become great leaders through ten intriguing stories. Each story focuses on a specific facet of your next promotion while tracing the career of a leader who used it effectively.

The book helps you understand what you need to do, why you need to do it and how you can do it. And well, if you have not started already, you may be getting late! 

So grab your copy and get ready for your next promotion!

The Unwritten Rules of Promotion

A manager I was working with was excited in the hope to finally get the promotion he thought he deserved. He thought he had everything lined up to gain his promotion into the executive ranks—from achieving clear results to having the support of his immediate manager. Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to him, another leader above him blocked his promotion because of a past conflict the two of them had. It took him a long time to recover from this setback, and also cost his company the loss of his motivation and discretionary effort. Getting promoted is a major milestone in one’s career. It’s important! That’s why Manbir Kaur’s book Get Your Next Promotion is so critical. Every leader, manager, ambitious professional and anyone involved in human resources should read it and share it. It breaks down exactly what you need to know to think strategically about your career and accelerate your success. Add it to your must-read list

How to get the next promotion is a question that comes up often in my coaching conversations with professionals in corporations. Manbir writes with clarity and honesty about a subject that leads to frustrations and resignations in many organizations. You will finally understand why, sometimes, others are chosen instead of you and what can you do to get ready for the next promotion.

In today’s dynamic business environment, talent provides limitless possibilities. The ‘rope’ to ascend in the career path for such talents is always available but one needs to be smart, not to hang oneself (with the rope) in sheer passion, instead of climbing up to the top. While one’s own effort may help get a better grip on the ‘rope’, the eclectic collection of the most enriching experience from the top global leaders in form of stories in this book makes it perhaps the most unique book which will help the talents exponentially accelerate their professional progressions...and climb the rope...a must read.
